This conference will capture the essence in CTA’s Mission Statement: to ensure that the dignity and civil rights of all children, youth, and adults are protected and to secure a more equitable and democratic society.
In 2022, this conference is returning to in-person. CTA members will have access to dynamic speakers and interactive workshops that will provide them with a greater understanding of the issues of diversity, equity and social justice.
The theme for 2021 will be Spring into Action: declutter, decolonize, organize. Our workshop sessions will cover this theme through the lens of the following categories:
• Awareness: Develop and strengthen our collective awareness and understanding of the causes and impacts of racism in education and need for racial justice;
• Skills: Equip and prepare member leaders with skills to use the strategies to take action to advance racial and social justice;
• Capacity: Equip members and stakeholders with tools and resources to advocate, mobilize, and organize to disrupt systemic racism and advance racial and social justice in education.
